Ask Joe #90 – Quality vs Quantity

In this episode, I share with you my thoughts on why you can absolutely aim for both quantity AND quality when creating art and making music. I also answer questions about everything from dealing with a spastic acoustic guitar player to ditching Pro Tools to working with amp simulator plugins.

Unhappy With Your Mixes?


That’s right, I said it. I’ve heard too many people tell me that they aren’t happy with their mixes, and the next words out of their mouth are “I need to buy another…” — plug-in bundle or another microphone, or another pre-amp or another piece of software.

Unfortunately, I hate to be the one to tell you this, but that’s not going to solve your problem.

You see, the issue is much simpler than that. If your mixes aren’t sounding good, I’m almost 100% certain that your plug-ins are not the main issue. The problem most of us run into when our mixes don’t sound how we want them to sound is that the tracks themselves don’t sound how we want them to sound.
